Review[edit]

Following the disappointing showing in Town's 1st season in the top-flight, Town were hoping for better fortunes in their second season, but Town made the same amount of points that they did the previous season, but they did finish 3 places higher than the previous season.

However, the season is fondly remembered by Town fans for their success in the FA Cup. After needing replays to beat Burnley, Brighton & Hove Albion and Blackburn Rovers, they dispatched Millwall in the 4th round and easily disposing of Notts County at Turf Moor in the semis and reached their 2nd final in 3 years. They played Preston North End in the final, just 2 days after beating them 6-0 in the league. Billy Smith (who along with Ernie Islip had scored a hat-trick in the 6-0 win) scored the winning penalty and Town won the cup for their 1st and only time.
